Another holiday gift, Google is encouraging brands to use ‘Promoted Places in Google Maps’ to showcase their special offers and announcements to drive more traffic to their stores this holiday season.

Currently, in a limited test phase, the Promoted Places was first announced in March and integrates seamlessly with browsing experience on the Google Maps for Android app.

Promoted Places ads appear where places of interest are visually marked with retailers location icons to help users orient themselves and explore the world around them. When a user clicks on a branded pin, it will reveal promotions such as in-store sales or new products and services to help consumers decide where to go. Additionally, they can view business’s place page to see store hours, check live updates to Popular Times, get directions, and more.

Advertisers can improve awareness for their stores by branding their location icons with their logo.
